SANTOL

SantolBotanical Name: Sandoricum koetjape
Description

There are two forms of the Santol the red and the yellow, both have large round textured yellow fruit with a very thick velvety skin. The divided fruit segments can be consumed raw or as in India, eaten with spices. The flesh is usually sucked off the seeds as the pulp clings firmly to them.Take care not to swallow the slippery seeds. By removing the seeds it makes a tasty jam or jelly.


The tree itself is very elegant in appearance with large lime to deep green leaves and offering occasional contrasting red leaves. In its native setting it is a large tree that will buttress with age, it has low growing branches and makes an excellent street or shade tree. Young plants are frost sensitive and will require protection from cold, however once established they can handle a light brief frost.

Question & Answer

Could you please let me know if Santol is self pollinating or needs more than one tree to produce fruit. Thanks. From:

Santol are partially self-fertile, they will crop more heavily if you have more than one planted. #Santol619

Santol

The santol fruit can be pickled in salt water and can be used as a side dish together with any rice meals. The fruit skin must be peeled leaving the rind and seeds to be pickled. As for the seeds, these must not be swallowed as it caused deaths in Asia. | Jay - Sydney, NSW 25-May-2006

Santol is best eaten, at least the way Filipino eat,by removing the skin and making criss cross shallow cut on the skin and then living it for two days in a vinegar, water, salt and sugar mixture. Do not forget to refrigerate it | Gretchen Jenelle V. Ursolum - Stockton, Ca. , US 24-Jan-2007

Cut the tip of the santol tree so it will not grow taller and become shady instead and easy to pick the fruit.. | Christopher Viray - Campbelltown, NSW 19-May-2010

Some are flavourless, some are too acid, but get a good seedling or cultivar and they are EXCELLENT. Maybe not to rival a mangosteen, but similar.

you suck off the flesh from around the seed, like a sour fruit drop, and spit it out

very well suited to the dry tropics. beautifully formed tree, worthy just as ornamental

Sun/Shade: Full Sun

Water Given in: Winter

Pollination: Self Pollination

Fertiliser or Organics Used: good garden soil

Pest Control:

Never seen fruit fly in it. Never seen spoilage in the dry tropics, in wet tropics (cairns) they can have fungal problems
